We can set up all the technical and initial design requirements of your site and then hand the site over to you to grow it – adding new pages and updating your content whenever you want.

Self managed websites built with WordPress.

WordPress began as a blogging tool, but has now become the most popular database-driven platform on the web. WordPress powers more that 30% of CMS websites on the web today. We use the WordPress CMS platform for self-managed websites because it offers the most dependable, flexible, secure and cost-effective CMS available. Its popularity ensures it has the best variety of available plugins and applications and many unique solutions and toolsets for more specialised website functionality. The learning curve for self-managing a WordPress website is markedly easier than other CMS platforms like Joomla.

With a WordPress CMS website, you can manage the permissions for all the users on your site, deciding who can edit or modify which content and applications.

No coding required

You’ll be able to change and update your site with an easy-to-use visual page builder and text editor.

What’s involved in managing your own site?

The learning curve for self-managing a WordPress website is markedly easier than other CMS platforms like Joomla. A dynamic, self-managed website will have all the same modern features, like mobile phone and tablet responsivity.
